With a doctor's referral, cancer patients receive services at Chester River Hospital Center's Outpatient Chemotherapy Center. Services provided include both chemotherapy and ther related services, including injections, blood transfusions and IV treatments.
Because cancer affects every part of a patient's life, Chester River Hospital Center offers physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech and hearing therapy to help cancer patients regain maximum function and independence. Our dietitians help patients meet and plan for special nutritional needs during and after treatment. Our nursing staff helps manage the treatment of side effects and provides ways to control cancer symptoms and pain.
The Cancer Counseling Program is a collection of services offered to cancer patients and their families to address the psychological and social needs that accompany the diagnosis of cancer. The program is funded partially through a local donor and partially through health insurance, and is operated by the oncology nursing staff.
